What a mess! This is the only way I can describe our healthcare system.
So how did we get here? Let’s start at the top, the decision-makers in Washington DC, the politicians.
Most politicians that sit in Washington DC are attorneys by profession. The people vote them in, so during the campaign they in essence come and seek your approval and hopefully your vote. Their demeanor is humble and they’re full of promises. But once they’re in some form of metamorphosis goes on and they now become our dictators rarely seeking the voter’s opinion. After all aren’t we the people their employers? They work for us. The checks they receive are from taxpayer dollars. So why aren’t we consulted in regards to such an important subject matter as healthcare.
It affects us all–the young and the old. And if we don’t have our health what else do we have in life? Our health affects everything! Oh I’m sure I can hear the response; it would just be too laborious to try and get the people’s opinion and after all you did vote me in to represent you. That’s the first fatal mistake!
